I could include a special piece of logic 
in the debian rules, which checks for AMD64 and
disables the native code compiler in that case...

.. or I could change the config script (since I'm 
also the upstream author).

But that isn't *manual* intervention. 

BTW: the packages are available in the directory

http://felix.sf.net/debian

There is a dependence on ocaml,
but none on the native code package.. if you happen to have
it installed the native code compiler will be used to
build the binary package, otherwise you'll get bytecode.
